CU Marketplace users will notice a new landing page upon logging in. When using the Form Process, a new dashboard will provide key information and guidance that shoppers need to be aware of in order to efficiently procure goods or services from suppliers who do not have established pricing with the university. There will also be new commodity dashboard links across the top of the screen to guide you through the procurement process for each specific commodity.
